    I think you mentioned that you are 6'4"? I am 5'10" barefoot and I hate spiral staircases in general - watch your head! Couple that with the limited access (carry anything up there much?), it is a non-starter for me. Not to mention I hope you are planning on loading in all furniture/etc prior or have an access door in wall so you can forklift up what you want up there...

    I just checked the site and they list the minimum headroom at 6'6", however I will follow up with a phone call to verify. Thanks for pointing that out!
    Getting stuff up there should be easy with a long balcony landing. It will have a gate, so all of the heavy stuff will go up via forklift.
    In all I my find a set somewhere and see if it is something I think I can live with.

    Folks say 3' hallways are adequate too. Doesn't mean I would put 'em in my house or office

    You're building a good sized shop designed to have plenty of room for everything. I am doing much the same, right down to the garage door clearances as you did. What I am getting at is, why skimp and do a spiral? Usually, spirals are used for limited spaces which would seem to not be the issue here. Betcha a cold beer that if you go with one (unless it is a custom increased radius with 8-10' clearance), you'll kick yourself

    When you test one out, grab a couple of cases of beer or a ream of paper, etc and go climbing - PITA IMO... I did this and we decided to rejigger our design and built a deck with exterior staircase to suit our design/access needs - glad I did.

    Have a good one, love the shop!

    My primary staircase in my house is an oldschool spiral setup. The steps are easily 3 1/2' wide Which make it very easy to go up and down even with other items. Just make sure whatever you get is sized large and you'll have little problems IMO

    Well here is where we are on the shop. Interior walls up, and will start the side wall in the morning.
    I am still kicking the stairs around, may have to come up with something custom.

    Did score a box of 1998 Punch Churchills, and a few Cohiba Siglo V's. So it's not all work and no play.
